    Some Mag can have mine for shipping. No low post counts, no jongs!

    I didnít have the freeride model, just the regular model. I have a pair with ~110mm brakes and a pair of super wide brakes that may be ~130ish for the phat boyz.

    Quit skiing them because of chronic pre release issues, even when I cranked up the DIN. that would be to like 12.

    I had a few heinous pre releases that I was lucky to escape from unscathed.

    When I researched these they had a higher incidence of ACL injuries.

    Ie: low total number but they didnít sell very many so if extrapolated out to pivot numbers you are more likely to blow your knee.

    If you're serious, I'll certainly take you up on the offer.
    [I'm curious, did you test the binding for proper release values - i.e. in newton-meters/torque.]
    PM'd as well.

    Yeah Iím serious, but canít figure out if you are.

    You can have Ďem! Good riddance.

    I feel like Iím giving a case of smokes to a ten year old or a hot iron to a toddler. I feel like I need a notarized document of indemnification. I took some really nasty pre release falls. One I was lucky to survive, let alone ski away from.

    At any point did you feel they saved you from a knee injury?

    nvrmnd - I was responding to your earlier post.
    Sounds like they'll kill you thru pre-release.

    Yeah - I'm serious. At minimum I'll mount them on a board and check the torque values for release and see if they match the expected values.

    We'll see after that.
